Pacific Beach Middle School is hosting two teachers from the University of Zurich in Switzerland. “Roman Bernath and Severin Weilenmann are here to learn from us, but we feel like it’s the other way around. We learn so very much from them. They teach our students to compare aspects of culture, language, customs, and educational systems,” said Jennifer Sims, IB coordinator for PB Middle. “The teachers will be volunteering in humanities, visual arts, and physical-education classes at PB Middle until mid-February. At PB Middle, international partnerships are just one way we strive to provide meaningful international experiences for our children; right here in our own backyard.” To learn more about PB Middle or check for campus tour dates, visit
